Veröffentlichungen: Sandboy „Echoes“
The lovely Sandboy album ‘echoes’ is excellent indeed, …beauty and originality!
Great harmonies and melodies, verses and choruses, intelligent instrumentations and above all, a sense of musical esthetism that perfectly sticks to the original Sandboy personality.
Inspiration is really the keyword when it comes to understanding what brought Sandboy and this international cast of producers, musicians and vocalists together. All these artistic exchanges have happened due to a genuine mutual respect and fascination which guide this double angle production project: other artists revisiting and remixing the world of Sandboy and Sandboy himself exploring the sonic universe of others.
When Sandboy himself pays tribute to the work of Gerd (with gracious vocals of UK soul diva Vanessa Freeman) and Plastyc Buddha we are rediscovering the musicality and the rich textures that make Meggles productions so special and singular.
To complete this wide circle of emotions and atmospheres, Sandboy wanted to go beyond this reflection on each others work by displaying the subtle art of collaborations and featurings, offering 2 brand new tracks recorded especially for this album. Listen carefully to the 2 opening tracks here cause ‘call out’ (recorded with low budget soul’s voice Randolph Matthews) and ‘common cause’ (recorded with the gracious sonar kollektiv artist Clara Hill) are far from being 2 unreleased fillers. These tracks themselves justify the human and artistic accomplishment and the natural path of Sandboy and the generous people he met on his road. Much more than a remix compilation, this album stands for itself - a sound journey of its own kind.
A very acomplished collection of very strong tunes.
Wow, amazin’. Congratulations for you work.
